Today’s card is a perfect one for summer.  It will no doubt make you smile with it’s cheery color selection and use of the Sunbeam Technique.  I received this card from Rita Pfingsten.  I love how she painted her flowers using our Watercolor Paints.  She even added some sparkle with our Clear Shimmer Brush (unfortunately, I didn’t capture the beauty it creates!)

Home Is Where the Heart Is Card

US Vacation Card

Tomorrow I leave for Las Vegas for Close To My Heart’s Annual Convention.  I felt like this swap card I received from Linda Black best represented the feeling of Convention.  It truly is like going home each year.  You get the chance to see friends you’ve known so many years that they are like family!  It’s like the best family reunion–one that you definitely don’t want to miss out on!  I look forward to attending it each year.

Watercolor Aloha Card

Watercolor Aloha Card

It’s officially summer–time for vacation!  This card, that I received from Carol Thompson, completely embodies the tropical feel of the perfect vacation!  The beautiful watercolor painting of the flowers makes for a stunning card.  As does all the fussy cutting of the flowers and leaves.  It adds depth and dimension to the card.  It’s so beautiful!
